Lead Partner: Norwegian University of Life Sciences
Partners provide the NextFOOD project with a number of case studies to support its scope and objectives. The cases have been selected because they are (1) at various stages in a transition to participatory, action-directed learning in agrifood systems, and (2) are directed towards a programme in the range from vocational training to university studies. To secure consistency, comparability and knowledge transferability in the case study, a common overarching participatory action research protocol is utilized to each specific case depending on its history, current situation, unique context, and future options.
The NextFOOD action research includes two distinct but interlinked processes: (1) participatory case inquiry with the aim of obtaining a desired, innovative change, and (2) research on the data generated with the aim of generating new, generic knowledge needed to contribute to more sustainable agrifood systems. WP2 will facilitate this innovation and research process in each case to ensure outputs needed in the other work packages and in agreement with the NextFOOD objectives.
